For the Love of Children
For the Love of Children is an annual event hosted by the Friends of CASA. This event is normally a luncheon, where the community can come together to learn more about CASA and raise money for the CASA Children's Fund. In 2021, we held the event virtually for the first time. We were overwhelmed by the success of the event and are so grateful.
Walk for CASA
Join us for our first hybrid event of 2021 - Walk For CASA! Walk or run ANYWHERE at ANYTIME or join us for a socially distant walk at Elkhorn Slough (1700 Elkhorn Road, Castroville) on May 15th, between 9am-noon. We will notify all in-person walkers of your walk time on May 3rd. All proceeds from this event support CASA of Santa Cruz County's mission to match every foster youth referred to us with a trained volunteer Advocate within 20 days.
In 2020, Imagine! was a free virtual event with a live-stream auction, online bidding, and stories from former foster youth and their CASAs. In addition, we also held a private virtual mixer 30 minutes prior to the start of the live-stream. Tickets included wine glasses and a bottle of wine from a local winery.
In 2021, we are optimistic we will have some sort of in-person or hybrid event in September. We are tentatively looking at September 18, with more details to come.
